Perez Hilton, world famous celebrity blogger, started a Twitter frenzy late last night with allegations that Will.I.Am of The Black Eyed Pears assaulted him. Hilton, real name Mario Lavandeira, alleged in his late night tweet that Will.I.Am and his security guards assaulted him around 3AM EST. Perez Hilton was in Toronto, Canada, where he was presenting at Sunday night’s MuchMusic Awards.
Around 3AM EST, Perez Hilton sent his first tweet, after contacting the police and reporting assault by Will.I.Am and his security entourage. Hilton’s first tweet about the incident stated that he was in “shock” and needed the police ASAP. According to his later tweets, the police was not showing up and Hilton was bleeding. He used his Twitter account to summon police with the help of his followers all over the globe.
Perez Hilton reported the alleged incident to the Canadian authorities, and also to his attorney. It is unclear as of right now if charges against Will.I.Am will be filed, but Hilton was allegedly bleeding and appeared to be both shocked and distraught in his tweet messages. Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton, who are well known friends, were together around the same time. It is unclear if she witnessed the alleged assault, but Hilton claims that there were plenty of witnesses that saw the incident take place.
Perez Hilton Allegedly Assaulted: Violence Is Never Okay
In one of his many late night tweets after the alleged incident, Hilton sent messages to his followers stating that “Violence is NEVER called for.” In another shock, other online reports suggest that Will.I.Am called Perez Hilton a derogatory name “faggot”, referring to Hilton’s sexual orientation.
Perez Hilton vs. Will.I.Am: Twitter Face-Off
Perez Hilton has over one million fan followers on his official Twitter account. Will.I.Am apparently just caught on to the trend and opened up his own official Twitter account. Will.I.Am’s first tweet claimed that he opened up a twitter account because of someone blaming and spreading lies about him. This tweet was targeted towards Perez Hilton, and was followed by other tweets referring to Hilton as “crazy” and only out to get press.
Perez Hilton shot back with a tweet directed to Will.I.Am, stating:
“@iamtherealwill There are multiple witnesses. You can deny all you want. The truth is the truth and I am telling the truth.about 1 hour ago from web in reply to iamtherealwill”
In his response, Will.I.Am went viral with a video response.
Will.I.Am’s video response claims that Fergie went up to Perez Hilton and asked if he had a problem with her. Perez responded that he did not like their record, and Will.I.Am apparently had a problem with Hilton constantly disrespecting Fergie on his blog. As a fan of Perez Hilton’s blog, I am aware that he often ridicules Fergie. Will.I.Am was upset that Fergie was emotional over Hilton’s disrespect, and felt like he was protecting Fergie, because “she is like a sister to me.”
Will.I.Am went up to Perez Hilton and asked him to not be blatantly rude towards his group, The Black Eyed Peas. He asked Hilton to not be ‘blatantly disrespectful”, and Hilton replied that he did not respect him. Will.I.Am claims that Perez Hilton used the derogatory term “faggot” and that Hilton called him a “faggot” in front of a crowd of people. One of the fans, according to Will.I.Am, started problems with Perez Hilton and argued in front of witnesses.
In his second video response, sent about an hour later, Will.I.Am claimed that Perez Hilton was a liar who was out to get press by any means necessary. Will.I.Am defended himself, and proclaimed his innocence.
Perez Hilton Moves On With Work
During some of his late night tweets, Hilton expressed his need to go back to work and use his blog to move past the alleged incident. Hilton felt that he made the right decision by reporting the alleged incident to the authorities, after he was beaten up and even started bleeding.
We are sure that Perez Hilton will take to his blog today to inform everyone about the late night incident with Will.I.Am. Although he has not issued a video response himself, Hilton will take to his massively popular blog to discuss the assault that allegedly took place in Canada. Violence is never okay, and Hilton will let the entire world know about it.
Perez Hilton’s Emotional Video Response
Perez made an emotional video in response to alleged assault at the hands of Will.I.Am and the singer’s entourage. Hilton made his response as Mario Lavandeira, and at the start of the video Hilton appeared to be teary eyed and very distraught over the incident. Hilton again expressed that “violence is never the answer”, and that another person should never be hit. Perez talked about the incident, and how the night started at dress rehearsals and his talk with Fergie. Perez and Fergie had a discussion about his blogs that Fergie felt were disrespectful towards her. As Perez explains, not everyone agrees with his blog, and people have even sued him over his words. However, no one has ever physically attacked him. He also claims that Will.I.Am lied about what happened, and that he made a video lying about the incident. Perez also answers Will.I.Am’s claim that he is only out for publicity, stating that his blog receives plenty of visitors and does not require publicity.
Perez claims that someone from The Black Eyed Peas entourage pushed him in an aggressive manner, and that Fergie and Perez talked again during an after-party in a club. Fergie had a problem with Perez’s blog posts directed towards her, but Hilton claims he can be objective. Hilton alleges that Will.I.Am came up to him, and aggressively asked Perez to never write about his band on his website again. Hilton felt that Will.I.Am was trying to intimidate him, and that a “split second decision” made him call Will.I.Am a “faggot”. Hilton then claims that Will.I.Am followed him outside the club, and that his manager got involved. Will.I.Am’s manager was the one who punched Perez Hilton, and made Hilton’s eye bleed. It was not a random fan that hit Perez Hilton, as Will.I.Am had claimed, but it was indeed The Black Eyed Peas manager.
Perez Hilton had several choice words for Will.I.Am directly, including several curse words. Hilton did call Will.I.Am a coward for not hitting him, and having his manager assault him instead.
Hilton did confirm that Lady Gaga was with him during the incident, and that he made a decision to call the police after Will.I.Am followed him to the hotel. Lady Gaga did have security personnel, but Hilton wanted to have authorities make a report.
During his video response, Hilton had a visible black eye on the right side, and a visible mark below his eye. Hilton did cry towards the end of the emotional response, with several choice words for The Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, their manager and of course Will.I.Am.
